Speaking with DAILY POST, Gumi described the Nigerian Army’s statement as a caution and not a warning.
Recall that the Nigerian Army had warned Gumi and other “opinion merchants” in Nigeria against their utterances.
The Army had said it does not deploy troops along religious or ethnic lines, contrary to Gumi’s statements to bandits that Christian soldiers were responsible for their deaths.
A statement by the Director, Army Public Relations, Mohammed Yerima warned Nigerians to desist from making remarks capable of creating bad blood.
The warning was issued following remarks credited to Gumi alleging that Christian soldiers were specifically attacking bandits in the North.
However, Gumi stressed that he was misunderstood.
According to Gumi: “One, I did not see it as a warning but a word of caution, I was misunderstood.”
Lately, Gumi has been negotiating with armed bandits terrorizing some states in the North.
The Islamic cleric had urged the federal government to grant amnesty to bandits willing to lay down their arms.
